Your daily dose of awesome. Watch for tomorrow’s email for even more fun stuff.
Business, Life and the World:
I’m going to share one of my favorite stories of all time with you today. But before you watch it, I’d like to set the stage.
While watching this video, think about a few things.
The most important is what are YOUR gifts?
And, are you using them?
Are you a fish trying to swim or are you a fish trying to climb a tree?
If you’re struggling in your business, perhaps it’s because you’re not spending your time swimming.
With my coaching clients, one of the first worksheets they do is a “Strengths” vs. “Non-Strengths (at this time)” list.
Oftentimes the things they’re doing on the non-strengths list can be Eliminated, Automated or Delegated — so that they can instead, like the fish, focus on doing what they were literally born to do.
When a fish is swimming, does it feel like work? No. It’s natural and enjoyable. It’s AWESOME.
When a squirrel is swimming, does it feel like work? HECK YEAH. If the poor little squirrel even survives.
Therefore, if you’re struggling to write that blog post, perhaps picking up a video camera would put you more in your element. Don’t force it. LOVE it.
If you’re not exercising because you hate your morning run, sign up for a dance class instead. YOU are in control. Choose something you love and, again, it won’t feel like work. It’ll be FUN – and much much more productive.
If it’s HARD, either try it another way, or outsource it to a fish. 🙂 That’s my tip for you today.
